This book contains Jenusia (Genousie) and Seven Impromptu Plays for Leisure - Nitrogen, The Twinkling Twins, The Grand Vizier, The Late, Edward and Agrippina, The Hangman's Sacrifice, Cayenne Pepper. Critics have admired the remarkable ease of Obaldia's style. His plays always take place within a framework of contemporary times and concern modern subjects, treating these in a comical manner. In La Génousie, for example, Obaldia replaces normal speech (in French) with Genousian, a language of fantasy, dreams, and love.
Rene de Obaldia is a French poet and playwright who was elected to the Academie Francaise in 1999.
The book is in good condition with slight wear and tear to its dust-jacket.
A rare opportunity to read this wonderful French playwright in English translation.
